The IOC website currently has affirmed a total of 95 medal events, after accepting, as it appears, the recommendation of Olympic historian Bill Mallon regarding events that should be considered "Olympic". These additional events include the mail coach event.[2][3] (Mallon and de Wael had included this event in their Olympic lists.) As with 24 official medal events from other sports, the IOC does not list the winners of the mail coach event in its results database.
